Final Report - CHICOS (Developing a Child Cohort Research Strategy for Europe)

Project ID: 241604
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the final report for the CHICOS project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). CHICOS was commissioned to improve child health across Europe by developing an integrated strategy for mother-child cohort research through coordination of the most important European cohorts. CHICOS is structured into work packages to make an overview of all mother-child cohorts in Europe. Following three years of intense collaboration, the project came to conclusion in February 2013. In short, CHICOS has shown that pooling of cohort data across countries is possible and valuable, but that there are still substantial practical obstacles in international collaborative initiatives. This final document outlines its findings and recommendations for future birth cohort research and its' role in policy development.
